Happy Birthday Cloud9





There's a new blog hop for WPlus9 fans called Cloud 9, and one not to miss the p-a-r-t-y, I'm jumping on board with this birthday card (which if you look closely has yesterday's date on it, so happy birthday to the blog hop).  I took inspiration from the background, heat embossed it with the Hero Arts background cling then added some distress inks.  I used the PTI notebook die on acetate and then added the fun WPlus9 Spring Post stamp and put the sentiment on the inside of the card with the postmarks date.  Perhaps I should send this to my sister-in-law who's birthday was yesterday and I forgot to call/write/email... slacker.  Since I've stamped this card I'm going to enter it in the Moxie Fab World "Stamp It" birthday card challenge.  And thanks ~amy~ for reminding me that since I use acetate that this is perfect for the Paper Issues "I can see clearly" challenge".  Happy Tuesday friends, there's still a little time in my birthday giveaway post, click here.
